Dear Dr. Todorov,

Recently I was pushed by my estetitian to buy two products by Clayton Shagal - Collagen Gel and Elastin gel. He told me that I really need them after harsh facial he performed on me. I'm very sceptical about topical collagen however, thus I'd like to ask your opinion.

Below is he list of ingredients I found on the box.

Elastin gel:
Hydrolised Acido Solible elastin Hydrolise
Hydrocomplex
NaOH
Polyethylene Glycol
Polymer
H2O
Preservative

Collagen Gel:
Non Hydrolised Acido Solible Collagen non Hydrolyse
Hydrocomplex
NaOH
Polyethylene Glycol
Polymer
H2O
Preservative

Thanks in advance

How did these products work for you? A few female friends have recommended these two products to me. I have been doing some research and have found only positive feedback. I think that I remember Dr. T mentioning that collagen is a large molecule and cannot penetrate the skin. Has anyone tried these products?

There are very cheap lotions and creams by St. Ives sold at walgreens, CVS etc that contain collagen and ellastin. They are just moisturizers, won't remove wrinkles or anything like that but the price is for sure way lower than the ones pushed on you.

I know better, but I am such a sucker! I guess I really want to find something that will work.
